In the mid nineties I was going to night school and cutting meat in the supermarket by day. Dad told me that I could make more money as a COBOL contractor, especially because of Y2k. Dad spent a year training me COBOL, where I had to recite the code! Got a QA job and taught myself HTML and JavaScript. Dad said Internet was a fad. After Y2k he was done and I had a good career. Owe him everything for putting me on the path.
